A Quick Guide to Bus Cleaning

How to Keep Your Vehicles Clean

For fleet operators running many buses, coaches, shuttles or any other vehicle daily, a commitment to a comprehensive vehicle cleaning regimen is required for business success. However, not all operators have a clear understanding of what cleaning a vehicle involves and how to ensure that larger vehicles are in pristine condition for use. For this reason, we have put together a quick guide to help you out.

Bus Cleaning Tips

Remove the Trash from the Inside

Start by removing any leftover paperwork and other trash that is no longer required from the vehicle. This way, you can begin the cleaning work with fresh vehicle surfaces, and you won’t have to clean around other objects within your vehicle.

Shampoo Carpets and Upholstery

The carpeting within your vehicle can become damaged by food elements, salt from the wintertime, and moisture during days of high humidity in the summer. It requires thorough cleaning with shampoo on a regular basis. Combine a carpet cleaner with a shampoo product to gently clean the carpet and upholstery in the bus. This will quickly help you achieve a new bus appeal.

Dust Air Vents

Food elements and other contaminants can remain in the vehicle’s vent system while you clean, only to then be pushed throughout the vehicle the moment you turn on the heating or air conditioning. Clean the air vents carefully to help prevent this issue.

Add a Trash Container in the Vehicle

Once most of the inside cleaning has been completed, you can now add a trash container to your vehicle. You will be surprised at the difference this small change can make in keeping the bus neat and tidy for the coming months.

Use Soap, Water, and a Clean Bucket for the Exterior

Using a clean bucket, mix soap and water and then take the second bucket of water outside with you to the vehicle. You can then clean the vehicle carefully with a soap-soaked sponge, wiping from the roof downwards to eliminate any grime or dirt on the outside. Use the bucket of clean water to remove dirt build-up on the sponge between wipes.
